Best Album: Ensiferum's – 'One Man Army'


I've been wondering since I first heard it in February whether anything else would beat it to my Album Of The Year but it held it's own right to the end, even in a year when Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Helloween and Black Star Riders all released albums.

Ensiferum's 'One Man Army' is reviewed here.

Best Gig: Ensiferum – Islington Academy, London (March)


It's Ensiferum again live at the Islington Academy on 24th March and you can read my review right here. They utterly nailed it.

Best Band: Ensiferum


Well as they got Album Of The Year and Best Gig it can only be Ensiferum. They produced their best ever album, played like demons on tour and capped it all off with a magnificent performance at Bloodstock.

And the good news is they are back in England in February. You can listen to my interview with Sami right here.

Best New Band: Finsterforst


Finsterforst by a country mile. The album 'Mach Dich Frei' made a huge impression on me and might even have featured more in this article if Ensiferum had taken a year off. You can read my Finsterforst review right here.

Things To Look Forward To In 2016

More Ensiferum, the most spectacular Iron Maiden tour yet supporting their 'Book of Souls' album, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow re-emerging after twenty years, and two nights of Motörhead live at Hammersmith. Bring it on.
